In this talk, I try to explain the pervasive attention on reducing waiting times in cancer diagnosis and treatment in Denmark during the 2000s. I take a broader societal, biological and cognitive perspective and propose four vectors (of unequal scale and magnitude) at play during the period of 2000-2010 supporting the reframing of cancer: the exponential growth in numerical representations of cancer; the powerful circulation of cancer memories; the increasing life expectancy in the general population; and the conflicting atmosphere of booming economy and policies of fear. (Please note topic of talk was changed on 16th October 2014.)

This talk is part of the National Cancer Registration Service (Eastern Office) Monthly Seminars series.
